“We would like Scoop readers to know that we only take consignments, and do not purchase items,” said’s Bruce Hershenson, “so all of them items we auction each year come to us from 1,532 collectors and dealers all over the world.”
Despite their name, they don't just auction movie posters.
“We also auction tens of thousands of vintage stills and lobby cards, original travel and war posters, signed items of all types, and much, much more. Go to our Consign Page to learn about consigning to us for our regular weekly auctions or for our next two major auctions, which will be held in October and December (consigning to our September auction, which begins on Sunday September 7, is already closed),” he said.
